  • Don't leave food waste exposed; keep container lids tightly closed.
  • Line the bottom of your containers with newspaper or paper towel to absorb moisture.

  •  Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda, garden lime or vinegar in your containers.
  • Store your green bin in a secure, cool, ventilated location.
